“Fantastic Stay at the Reverie Traditional Apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

We just returned from a vacation in Santorini. We stayed at the Reverie Traditional Apartments and the service was excellent. Nikolina was there to answer all of our questions each and everyday and she helped us to find the best things to do on the island. A full breakfast was available at the hotel for 8 Euro everyday and the location of the hotel was ideal as it was very close (8 minute walk ) to Fira (the city center) and it was centrally located on the island so that we were easily able to walk to the Old Port take the bus or drive to Oia to see the sunset. The owners of the Reverie made us feel right at home and took very good care of us. We loved our stay there and would recommend it to anyone looking to visit the island of Santorini.

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I first decided to go to Santorini and Reverie. I've read great reviews about Firostefani and Reverie, but still... First of all, Firostefani is absolutely the best choice. Why? Because it's really 10 min. walk from Fira (the capital), but it's cheaper (accomodation). You can walk every night to Fira, go out to clubs and cafes (Caldera) and walk back home and not to take a bus. The hotel - total success! The staff is very kind. George is the father, he has two fabulous daughters - Nikolina and Antonia, who run their family hotel and are really giving their best to make it a cosy place to stay. They give you maps as soon as you arrive, and tell you where to eat, what to visit, where's the bus station and all other useful info about Santorini. They offered so many times to make reservations for restaurants, trips, excursions. Really great hosts! The hotel is clean, rooms are not small, each room has its own bathroom. They change towels every morning and clean the room every day. Deffinitelly good value for money. I strongly recomend Reverie Hotel! :-)) Katarina & Vlada (Serbia)

My wife and I, just came back from a weekend in Santorini. It was our first visit in the island. We stayed at the Reverie Traditional Apartments located in Firostefani, within a walking distance from Fira. The location is perfect because it is next to Fira ( a few minutes walk) but quieter. Our room was traditionally styled, very clean and with television, air condition and refrigerator and others amenities. The room is facing the nice pool. You have to pay an extra 8 euro for the breakfast which is excellent, huge and tasty. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Actually it is a family run business. If you need any information or help, Mr George is here. It looks after everything. We had a wonderful stay and next time we visit Santorini, we definitely choose again Reverie Traditional Apartments.

We stayed at Reverie last week during our honeymoon visit to Santorini and had a terrific time. I booked Reverie after thorough research and was convinced by the number of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Upon arrival at Santorini airport, George (owner), picked us up drove us back to Reverie apartments in Firostefani. Transfer can be arranged for 10 euros, added to your final bill. Nikolina (George's daughter) works the reception desk and was so friendly and helpful during our entire stay. She upgraded us to a studio room (room 6 at the top of the stairs) which had a lovely patio facing the footpath that leads to Fira and Imerovigli. The room was immaculately clean and refreshed with new towels each day. We took the footpath just outside of our room to Fira each day for lunch, walked to Imerovigli or took the bus (just outside Reverie) to Oia for daily sunset views. Firostefani was the perfect town for us - not as busy/overcrowded as Fira, and less expensive than Imerovigli and Oia. Nikolina recommended nearby Aktaion traditional restaurant and it ended up being our favorite restaurant on Santorini. Also, definitely rent a car and drive around the island - be sure to visit Santo Winery (great views) and Sigalas Winery (great wine and food)!

We just got back from our 10 day trip to Greece. Our stop in Santorini was at the Reverie Traditional Apartments. The hotel is very clean and the room was perfect for us. The bed, bathroom, towels, pillows were all very good. It felt like everything was brand new. The room had a small kitchen which is great if you want to have your own drinks and appetizers. First of all let me start by saying that Santorini is a very expensive island as far as Hotels go. We wanted a hotel that had a good location, ocean view and a price we could afford (Something under 110 Euros). I found this to be a very hard task for Santorini. If you want ocean front overlooking the caldera and you can afford it, this is probably not the hotel for you, The Reverie, located in Firostefani, even though it’s not right in Fira, it’s very close. You can walk back and forth no problem through the hundreds of winding little streets. On the first day we did decide that having a car was the best we could do. You can drive to town, go to the many beaches and historic areas and drive to OIA which is a must. There is free parking across from the hotel. I recommend that you rent a car or ATV or scooter just to use it as you need it. The hotel has a nice pool in between the rooms, great for cooling down after a day of walking. Everything is nicely decorated and so well maintained. The hotel is owned by a family and NIkolina their daughter really takes great care of you!!! George her dad does the driving and her mom the breakfast lounge. We got a room with ocean view but not towards the caldera (Those were much more expensive and even so they are not ocean front), we did have a huge balcony with a breakfast table and a beautiful ocean view. It faces the street and there is some noise from the cars and scooters. We really did not mind it but if you are a soft sleeper chose another room. We loved our view but if you can afford Caldera View I recommend you go for it!!! Even though our room did not see the caldera, the hotel has a little patio/balcony for the use of the hotel guests, you can sit here and bring your wine and cheese to watch the sunset or you can walk just 1 block to one of the many cafes or outdoor areas to watch the sunset. The hotel has free internet access and we loved it! Nikolina is a great concierge, our plane was cancelled and she simply did everything for us, they stopped what they were doing and took care of everything, found a new flight, arranged the tickets with a travel agency, contacted our hotel in Athens for an early arrival and had her father drive us to the airport all this in 1 hour or we would have been stuck in Santorini for 2 more days. These things are the ones that make your trip be a success or a failure so having Nikolina really made our lives so much easier. We did not try their breakfast but I know that their cost is around 8 Euros per person we ate at Mama’s House but that was just our preference nothing wrong with theirs. We did use their transportation to and from the port and airport for $10 euros for the couple and found this to be great and affordable. Really recommend using their transportation since neither the port or airport are close to town. Santorini is beautiful and staying at the Reverie will make your stay very enjoyable!!!!!

We stayed at the Reverie Traditional Apartments for 3 nights in August 2007 and had a fantastic stay.

This is a family run business and you are made to feel very welcome and they go out of their way to help wherever possible.

We used the hotel for our transfer from the port and found them to be very cheap compared to other transfers that our friends used.

Upon arriving at the apartments we were greeted by the lovely girl in reception (the daughter from the family) and were given a welcome shot of Greek alcohol. We then got a complete rundown of Santorini (with maps) including what beaches to swim at, where to go, places to eat, tours etc. The advice they gave was spot on and they also consider feedback from other guests so its advice you can trust (take note of their restaurant suggestions).

The apartments were large and very clean. Each room has a bedroom and separate sitting room with kitchen sink etc. Compared to other accommodation we saw in Santorini the rooms were big. There is also a pool which was good for cooling down.

The apartments are located an easy 10 minute walk into the city centre and has easy access to the Caldera View through a gate at the rear of the complex. Even though you dont face the Caldera view, just walk out the gate, 10 metres walk and you are at the view!!

The biggest thing that won us over was when we were running late for our dinner reservation and couldnt get a taxi. We asked if they could help us out, the father immediately stopped what he was doing and drove us and 2 friends to the restaurant which was 30 mins away! Then he didnt even ask for payment which we were more than willing to provide! It was such a nice thing to do and sums up what your stay at Reverie will be like.

I cannot fault this place, great value for money, excellent location and outstanding service.

One of the best endorsements is when your friends are saying they would rather stay in your apartment than the one they have paid twice as much for.

Stay here and you wont be disappointed!

Reverie is a great family run hotel - the service makes it stand out more than anything. Whatever we needed, it was taken care of, it felt like we were visiting family. The hotel was clean but the room we had was teeny tiny. The location is outside of the main downtown area but definitely quieter. If you don't mind walking up hills/steps then it's a great place to be at. And the rooftop area provides great views too. Santorini is breathtaking so you really can't lose no matter where you stay!
